Different circumstances but the same policy .... imposing their will over a country because of public outcry.
Yes, but don't forgot that's what we're doing for one side of that conflict too. This was done for Israel via the UN earlier as well. If it shouldn't be done then it shouldn't be done for either side.
I am all for the two sides duking it out and settling the issue on it's own with no interference instead. But it was the US progressives that spawned the same UN.
Plus, the UN is aiding and facilitating the same thing on Iran with sanctions. I take it you agree with that one?
